THE Prime Minister pledged to help more young people into work when he dropped into the borough this morning.

Gordon and Sarah Brown visited the Bromley-by-Bow Centre in St Leonard's Street to hear about the range of projects it offers to residents in the area in helping them to find jobs and improve their health.

Mr Brown branded the centre "remarkable" as he chatted to staff and volunteers and was given a tour around the centre's gardens and health building.

It was the second time Mr Brown had visited the centre and he said: "We are helping more young people back into work and a lot more businesses to stay in business.

"This project is helping not just young people but adults to get into work.

"But we have got a lot more to do. We are determined to ensure the community facilities are as good as they should be.
